Don’t presume what SC would say on restoration of JK’s special status, Omar Abdullah tells Ravi Shankar

Posted on

Srinagar: Taking a dig at Law Minister of India Ravi Shankar Prasad over his remarks that Article 370 of the Constitution will not be restored, National Conference (NC) vice-president Omar Abdullah and former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, has urged him not to presume what the Supreme Court judges would decide on the matter.

“Dear Ravi Shankar Prasad ji, we don’t expect you to restore anything but unless you are suggesting the Supreme Court has surrendered its independence & takes dictation from you please don’t presume to know what the Hon judges will decide,” Abdullah wrote on Twitter.

On Saturday, Prasad said the special status of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 will not be restored.

The Supreme Court is hearing multiple petitions filed by several mainstream parties of Jammu and Kashmir, including the NC, against the government of India’s August 5, 2019 decision to revoke the special status of the erstwhile state.
